  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Journal of Hypertension. - : Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. - 0263-6352 .- 1473-5598. ; 31:10, s. 2060-2068

    • Background:Left ventricular hypertrophy [LVH, high left ventricular mass (LVM)] is traditionally classified as concentric or eccentric based on left ventricular relative wall thickness. We evaluated left ventricular systolic function in a new four-group LVH classification based on left ventricular dilatation [high left ventricular end-diastolic volume (EDV) index and concentricity (LVM/EDV(2/3))] in hypertensive patients.Methods and results:Nine hundred thirty-nine participants in the Losartan Intervention For Endpoint reduction in hypertension (LIFE) echocardiography substudy had measurable LVM at enrolment. Patients with LVH (LVM/body surface area 116g/m(2) in men and 96g/m(2) in women) were divided into four groups; eccentric nondilated' (normal LVM/EDV and EDV), eccentric dilated' (increased EDV, normal LVM/EDV), concentric nondilated' (increased LVM/EDV with normal EDV), and concentric dilated' (increased LVM/EDV and EDV) and compared to patients with normal LVM. At baseline, 12% had eccentric nondilated, 20% eccentric dilated, 29% concentric nondilated, and 14% concentric dilated LVH, with normal LVM in 25%. Compared with the concentric nondilated LVH group, those with concentric dilated LVH had significantly lower pulse pressure/stroke index and ejection fraction; higher LVM index, stroke volume, cardiac output, left ventricular midwall shortening, left atrial volume and isovolumic relaxation time; and more had segmental wall motion abnormalities (all P<0.05). Similar differences existed between patients with eccentric dilated and those with eccentric nondilated LVH (all P<0.05). Compared with patients with normal LVM, the eccentric nondilated had higher LV stroke volume, pulse pressure/stroke index, Cornell voltage product and SBP, and lower heart rate and fewer were African-American (all P<0.05).Conclusion:The new four-group classification of LVH identifies dilated subgroups with reduced left ventricular function among patients currently classified with eccentric or concentric LVH.

  • Interaction between physical activity and television time on blood pressure level : Cross-sectional data from 45 000 individuals
  • 2018
  • Ingår i: Journal of Hypertension. - : Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. - 0263-6352 .- 1473-5598. ; 36:5, s. 1041-1050
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objectives: The aim was to investigate if there is an interaction between sitting time and leisure time physical activity on blood pressure and if there are age differences and sex differences in this respect. Methods: Linear regression analysis on cross-sectional data was performed in more than 45 000 men and women from two Swedish cohort studies, EpiHealth (45-75 years) and LifeGene (18-45 years). Self-reported leisure time physical activity was given in five levels from low (level 1) to vigorous physical activity (level 5) and television time was used as a proxy measure of sitting time. Results: High physical activity was associated with lower DBP (P = 0.001), but not SBP. Active middle-aged men had lower DBP (-1.1 mmHg; 95% CI -1.7 to -0.4) compared with inactive participants. Prolonged television time was associated with higher SBP (P < 0.001) and DBP (P = 0.011) in both sexes and in most age groups. Watching 3 h instead of 1 h television per day was associated with higher SBP in middle-aged women (SBP: 1.1 mmHg; 95% CI 0.7-1.4) and men (SBP: 1.2 mmHg; 95% CI 0.8-1.6). Only in young men, a high physical activity (level 4 instead of level 1) could compensate for a prolonged television time (3 h per day) in terms of DBP. Conclusion: Prolonged television time was associated with higher SBP and DBP in both sexes and at most ages, whereas an increased physical activity was mainly associated with a lower DBP. Only in young men, a high physical activity could compensate for prolonged television time regarding DBP.

  • Treatment of hypertension in patients 80 years and older : the lower the better? A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Journal of Hypertension. - 0263-6352 .- 1473-5598. ; 28:7, s. 1366-1372
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background: Results of randomized controlled trials are consistent in showing reduced rates of stroke, heart failure and cardiovascular events in very old patients treated with antihypertensive drugs. However, inconsistencies exist with regard to the effect of these drugs on total mortality. Methods: We performed a meta-analysis of available data on hypertensive patients 80 years and older by selecting total mortality as the main outcome. Secondary outcomes were coronary events, stroke, cardiovascular events, heart failure and cause-specific mortality. The common relative risk (RR) of active treatment versus placebo or no treatment was assessed using a random-effect model. Linear meta-regression was performed to explore the relationship between intensity of antihypertensive therapy and blood pressure (BP) reduction and the log-transformed value of total mortality odds ratios (ORs). Results: The overall RR for total mortality was 1.06 (95% confidence interval 0.89–1.25), with significant heterogeneity between hypertension in the very elderly trial (HYVET) and the other trials. This heterogeneity was not explained by differences in the follow-up duration between trials. The meta-regression suggested that a reduction in mortality was achieved in trials with the least BP reductions and the lowest intensity of therapy. Antihypertensive therapy significantly reduced (P < 0.001) the risk of stroke (35%), cardiovascular events (27%) and heart failure (50%). Cause-specific mortality was not different between treated and untreated patients. Conclusion: Treating hypertension in very old patients reduces stroke and heart failure with no effect on total mortality. The most reasonable strategy is the one associated with significant mortality reduction; thiazides as first-line drugs with a maximum of two drugs.

  • Interaction between the angiotensin-converting enzyme gene insertion/deletion polymorphism and obstructive sleep apnoea as a mechanism for hypertension.
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: Journal of Hypertension. - : Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. - 1473-5598. ; 25:4, s. 779-83
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objective Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) confers a risk of hypertension and cardiovascular complications. Both the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and OSA are important determinants of blood pressure, but it is not fully known how they interact. The aim of this study was to explore the interaction between the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism and OSA in the association with hypertension. Design A community-based, case-control design with hypertensive patients in primary care (n =157) and normotensive population controls (n =181). Methods All subjects underwent ambulatory polysomnography during one night. OSA was defined by a minimum of 10 apnoea/hypopnoea events per hour. Office blood pressure was measured and hypertension status was assessed. The genotypes were determined using polymerase chain reaction. Results An interaction analysis including sex, ACE I/D polymorphism (DD and ID versus II), and OSA identified a significant interaction between OSA and the ACE I/D f polymorphism: odds ratio (OR) 6.3, 95% confidence interval (Cl) 1.8-22.5, P= 0.004 as well as between OSA and sex: OR 3.3, 95% Cl 1.1-9.6, P= 0.033. OSA was significantly associated with hypertension in men but not in women. Conclusion The interaction between the ACE gene I/D polymorphism and OSA appears to be an important mechanism in the development of hypertension, particularly in men.

  • 7b.10: Thiazide Diuretics and Fracture-Risk among Hypertensive Patients. Results from the Swedish Primary Care Cardiovascular Database (Spccd)
  • 2015
  • Ingår i: Journal of hypertension. - 0263-6352 .- 1473-5598. ; 33 Suppl 1, s. e94-5

    • OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether treatment with thiazide diuretics reduces the risk of osteoporotic fractures in hypertensive patients in primary health care. Further we aimed to examine the impact of duration of thiazide use, the consequences of discontinuation of use and effect-modifications by gender. DESIGN AND METHOD: This retrospective cohort study includes 60 893 individuals, diagnosed with hypertension during 2001-2008 included in the Swedish Primary Care Cardiovascular Database. All patients were followed from a fixed baseline (1 Jan 2006, or the date the patient received their first diagnosis of hypertension if that date came later) until they had an incident osteoporotic fracture, died, or reached the end of the study at 31 Dec 2012, whichever came first. Patients exposed to thiazide diuretics (dispensed drugs recorded through the Prescribed Drug Register) were compared with hypertensive patients never exposed to thiazides. RESULTS: During follow up 2421 osteoporotic fractures occurred. Current use of thiazide diuretics was found to be associated with significantly reduced risk of osteoporotic fractures (adjusted hazard ratios 0.88; 95% CI 0.81-0.97) independent of blood pressure level. In addition, risk appeared to decline with longer duration of use. In contrast, discontinuation of dispensed prescriptions of thiazides was associated with increased risk of osteoporotic fractures (HR 1.17; 95% CI 1.04-1.31).However, a trend towards attenuation of the increased risk with longer duration past treatment period was seen. When analyzing men and women separately similar results were seen, for both genders, although only statistically significant for men. CONCLUSIONS: In this large retrospective cohort study of hypertensive men and women from Sweden, we could identity a protective effect on osteoporotic fractures among current users of thiazide diuretic drugs independent of blood pressure level. However, the risk of fracture was found to be increased in patients shortly after discontinuation of treatment compared to patients never prescribed thiazide diuretic drugs. The reason for an augmented outcome on osteoporotic fractures among patients with former thiazide diuretic therapy needs to be further elucidated.
